The two month appointment.

We went to see the doctor this morning. Technically, this visit was Olive's two month appointment, even though she is over two months old. Today was a rescheduled appointment, but the original one was also past the two month mark.

Olive weighed in at 10 lbs 6 ozs, and measured 21.75 inches long. The doctor was very pleased with her progress. Her weight is in the 50th percentile, her height is in the 30th percentile, and her head circumference is in the 75th percentile.

She also had several immunizations today - two shots and one oral medication. The oral dose was OK, although Olive clearly did not enjoy the flavor and was becoming wary of the whole thing by the end of her dose. The shots were another story entirely. They are very hard to take (for me and Olive). She screams and her face gets really red, really fast. (I generally get weepy for a bit.) Per her doctor's advice, I gave her some Tylenol, and she has been snoozing the afternoon away. (Olive apparently does enjoy the 'grape' flavor of Tylenol. She smacked her lips and licked and licked and licked the dropper.)

Kyle is headed to Tennessee again this week. So, Olive and I will be single ladies for a couple of days. Olive is far too young for chips and margaritas, but it sure sounds good to me!
